Shotcut is a free and open-source cross-platform video editing application for Windows, macOS, and Linux.

Shotcut supports many video, audio, and image formats via FFmpeg and screen, webcam, and audio capture. It uses a time-line for non-linear video editing of multiple tracks that may be composed of various file formats. Scrubbing and transport control are assisted by OpenGL GPU-based processing and a number of video and audio filters are available.

ShotCut is a great program itself, but this FlatPak is broken. You're better off getting the official latest version from

I used to edit my YouTube videos with Windows Movie Maker and for that I had to keep a Windows install... Then I came across Shotcut and all I can say is: 1. better performance and stability and 2. more possibilities and 3. and most important: all that for free AND on Linux! The only problem I have with it is that no filter change shows up on the timeline and thus they easily get irreversibly lost when pressing Ctrl+Z or Ctrl+Y.

Sadly enough the flatpack has an issue as I can only open it after fresh install. Mint 20.3 XFce 64 bit

While I am still learning the app, I would appreciate better font clarity within the menu tabs. Some of the words were not clear. This being said, I am still learning the operations of the app and cannot attest to the technical capabilities.

Works great on Mint 20.1 Cinnamon 64 bit. Had been using VSDC on Windows 10 before getting fed up with Microsoft and I find Shotcut easier to use!

Recently tackled several projects where clips needed to be removed from large video files for courtroom purposes. Openshot, my usual, ground to a screeching halt with the big files. Read about Shotcut and tried it. Performed like a champ! No significant slow downs or issues. Keep up the good work, whoever is working on this project.

I have used some paid software before and this can do all the same anf even something better. It has a really good community, that is very helpfull when looking for feature, help or troubleshooting. I use this for all my videoediting.

I love this video editor. I've used it on Windows and Linux for eBay videos and other editing and it's excellent! It's set up similar to Pinacle Studio and works possibly better.
